The Social Alpha Entrepreneurs for Impact (E4i) program is a year-long immersive program that equips passionate ‘entrepreneurs-in-the-making’ with end-to-end capacity building and training to leverage India’s deep science, innovation and entrepreneurship environment.
It is anchored in grassroots problem solving, immersive development sector experience, technology scouting, business planning and venture building. The program is designed to bring together entrepreneurs and innovators, and foster collaboration amongst some of the top educational, technical and philanthropic institutions in the world. The program completes the lab-to-market journey by enabling entrepreneurs to commercialize existing deep science-based innovations in labs.
We are looking for passionate, empathetic and motivated individuals who are dedicated to creating impact. We believe that an E4i can be from any background and walk of life. Whether you have a corporate or government experience, fresh out of college or an experienced professional – if you believe you can help India tackle critical social, economic and environmental challenges, we want you!
The first cohort of the E4i program will focus on finding solutions across a few high priority areas like water, sanitation, health, agriculture, energy and environment. Finalists will be encouraged to adopt a problem statement in one of these focus sectors, and identify or develop a solution that has the potential to create impact at scale while remaining financially sustainable.
